The warm welcome from the hosts Brenda and Roger, the comfort and food are what makes West Down just perfect. This time we were celebrating my birthday,and nothing was missed by Brenda or Roger to make... More

Once again we had a wonderful holiday. My husband has disabilities and Roger and Brenda attended to our every need in their own charming and efficient way. The food and accommodation were excellent. Lots of fun and we left feeling refreshed and ready to face the 'everyday' again. We look forward to our next visit.

This is our third visit to West Down and again it didn't disappoint with wonderful hosts in Brenda and Roger who made us feel like part of the family. Yet again the food was exceptional with a wide variety of choice. We stayed in the disabled room which was in a separate annexe and had all the facilities we required.... More

The most important first: We found and booked "West Down Guest House" from Germany by the internet. All experience reports and photos are absolutely correct. The farm is placed quiet but perfect to plan private trips in all directions. There is a huge garden included which invites you everywhere to enjoy and relax. The room was very clean and cosy....

This is our third stay with Roger and Brenda. Lovely room with all we needed, scrumy food and great fun. You cannot go to West Down and leave feeling unhappy. Made to feel like one of the family. Cannot wait to return.

If you are looking for a holiday that is full on, energetic and crazy, then the West Down Guest House is most definately not the place for you. However, if you want a place to really relax, to get to know other guests with great food and hospitality, then it most certainly is! This was our third visit to West... More

My partner and I have just returned from taking my elderly mother of 90 years to West Down for the second time. We all so enjoyed our first stay in 2012 my Mum was prepared to take the 260 mile journey to be looked after by Brenda with her wonderful meals and Roger with his breath taking flower baskets, tubs...

This was our third visit to West Down and as always we were made to feel special. Roger & Brenda are wonderful hosts. Roger provides the warmest bonhomie and Brenda's cooking is to die for! As my partner is a wheelchair user we have always had problems finding suitable holiday accommodation. However, the Swallow room was perfect for our needs... More

This is probably the best Guest House that we have ever stayed in. Brenda and Roger are wonderful hosts and their hospitality is unsurpassed with guests being treated as a extension of their own family - this is reflected in the number of repeat bookings with many visitors returning year after year and now regarded as family friends. Evening meals... More
